I have hit a brick wall on my research and just wanted some suggestions on where I should go from here. The furthest back I can get on one branch is that Edward Walsh, born in Ireland, immigrated in 1885 to NYC and his wife Alice McGowan who he married in 1887 immigrated in 1890.

So my question is what should my next step be, since I can’t find anything more on ancestry. Is that enough info to go and look the naturalization record up for Edward Walsh? By 1900 he was Na.

There son was John Joseph Walsh-born in Nov, 1891 in Manhattan NY. If I requested his birth certificate would it give me a more narrow location on his parents birthplace beside Ireland?
